Fresh Figs with Homemade Ricotta, Toasted Pecans, and Honey

I’ve been thinking about figs for a while now. Maybe it’s because I never really liked them growing up, even though they look so beautiful and tasty, or maybe it’s because I saw a few recipes recently pop up in magazines because they’re in season – at any rate, when I realized that I could get some fresh organic figs, I decided to take the leap. In anticipation of their arrival today with my Full Circle order, I made a fresh and incredibly rich ricotta cheese with milk and cream from Fresh Breeze Organic Dairy. The ricotta – incredibly rich, almost buttery, slightly salty, with a yellow hue – was the perfect taste complement to the sweet and luscious fruit. Add crunchy toasted pecans and sweet, sweet honey, and you have one hell of a side dish. Or is it dessert?

It turns out I still have 10 figs left to experiment with. Next up? Maybe this fig and vanilla infused vodka.
